Asan and Amelia play stepbrother and stepsister

Asan N'Jie from Emmerdale  has shared a sweet photo with his on-screen step-sister Amelia Flanagan.

Asan, who plays Ellis Chapman in the soap, posted the picture to his Instagram page.

He captioned the post: "Lil sis #ellis #april @emmerdale #itv @itv #emmerdale."

Last year, Ellis's mum Jessie married Marlon Dingle, making her sons Billy and Ellis stepbrothers to Amelia's character April and her halfbrother Leo.

Since late last year, Ellis and April seem to have formed a close bond.

Back in November, fans of the soap praised the new double act as April tried to give Ellis some advice.

Ellis agreed to look after a 'poorly' April and the pair ended up having a sweet heart to heart.

April asked the young lad why he hadn't followed his childhood dreams of becoming England captain and he told her he had a trampoline accident, resulting in him twisting his knee and not being able to compete in Manchester Academy trials.

April suggested even though he couldn't play for England anymore he could still be a football coach, then he and mum Jessie wouldn't argue all the time about what he was going to do with his life.

In a touching moment as April then told Ellis she could only remember the good things about her late mother Donna Windsor who sadly died in 2014.

Back in June, 11-year-old Amelia was praised by co-stars and viewers for her performance during dark scenes after step-brother Billy tipped off gangster Max's next crime to the police.

Unfortunately for Billy, Max had got away and sneaked back to Tall Tree cottages, where Marlon, Jessie and April were.

He held them hostage and threatened to shoot them if they didn't get Billy back to the house.

Luckily Billy managed to get April out of the house, put the poor girl was understandably upset by the whole ordeal.

Jessie was shot in a struggle between Billy and Max but luckily she survived and Max was carted off by the police.

In real life, Amelia is the older sister of William and Isabella Flanagan who play cousins Joseph Brown and Hope Stape in Coronation Street.
